We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, serving the greater Fort Worth area, and we know a thing or two about acreage mowing that we would like to share with you in this article. Call us for more information about acreage/lot mowing, and if you live in the Fort Worth area, call us for a job quote.
Know what you are paying for
Ask for a detailed explanation of what you are paying for. There is no standard when it comes to commercial mowing services; various companies include some services and do not include others, so just make sure you are absolutely clear what comes with the contract agreement that you sign.
Ask for references and follow-up on them
Again, there is no industry standard and there is no governing body which regulates commercial mowing companies. Ask for references and then take the time to call those references and ask for reviews. Yes, this will take some time and yes, it can be a tedious extra step, but it is one which can save you money and angst in the long-run, so our recommendation is that you do it.
Only the best equipment for acreage mowing services
A quality acreage mowing service will use a tractor mower to do the job, period, end of discussion. For tough acreage, one choaked with vines and small brush, a tractor attachment called a brush hog will also be used. If you are talking to a company and the owner says those two pieces of equipment are not necessary, leave immediately and talk to someone with more expertise and knowledge. A tractor mower has a powerful engine, the strongest of blades, and a cutting swath of fifteen or more feet. Those three things are necessary for the job to be done correctly, and only a brush hog can handle brush. Do not let anyone tell you differently. Tough jobs require tough machinery.
Make sure you are protected with acreage mowing services
Acreage mowing is dangerous. Tractor mowers can send projectiles i.e. rocks, sticks, pieces of metal flying hundreds of feet. Quality acreage mowing services will carry insurance like the $1,000,000 general liability insurance we carry at Keith’s Tractor Mowing. We carry that much insurance so that we are protected against accidents and so that all of our customers are protected. You should expect nothing less from any company you hire, and ask to see proof of insurance. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are unsavory businesses out there, and we don’t want you to fall victim to their spiel.
